Contemporary Dance Education
Dance Education with recognized degree for dance
Our 3-year Dance Education was founded in 1996 and belongs to the leading Dance Academies with a recognized degree for dance in Germany ever since.
We aspire to educate students to become technically, theoretically and creatively qualified dancers. Focus of our Dance Education is Contemporary Dance, Ballet, Modern and Jazzdance; thus we strive to meet the high international standards and diversity demanded of today’s professional dancers.
A dancer must develop an individual and complete body language which can only be found by extending one’s mind and body. To achieve this, the dance students will study intensely with a plethora of faculty throughout the three-year educational Danceprogram. Basis of the dance studies strongly emphasizes Contemporary Dance and Classical Ballet, including the Moderndance techniques Graham and Horton. A complete knowledge of these techniques enables the dancer to work flexibly in the unlimited contemporary dance styles that embody a multitude of differing concepts and approaches. Furthermore dancers will complete courses in Improvisation, Contact-improvisation, Partnering, Jazzdance and Commercial HipHop.
Knowledge of dance as an art form will be mediated through related subjects of studies such as applied Anatomy, History of Dance, Theory of Dance and Composition.
In preparing to become a professional dancer it is important to gain stage experience.
During the second year, every dance student creates an own Solo in the context of the composition classes.
During the third year, the dance students work on choreographies with their Dance teachers and Guest choreographers for the AdmissionToDance Show, a full-length dance performance presented to the public in march every year, in order to show their versatile dance skills. We are cooperating with the university HZT MA Choreography, so during the third year dance students also work on projects with the the Choroeography students to deepen their experience and widen their connections.
After the successful completion of the final examinations, the graduating dance students create and rehearse their own final choreographies with dance students from second and third year. These choreographic graduation works, the GraduateStudentsChoreos, are being presented to the public as a full-length dance performance in September at the official conclusion of the dance studies.
The rehearsals for all performances take place in the premises of the danceacademy. The dance students do not have to rent additional dance studios from outside.
The Dance Education is comprised of six terms culminating in a final exam with both theoretical and practical aspects.
The final exam can be taken only after the dancestudent has passed both examinations held at the end of the second and fourth term.
Classes are held on a full day basis, Monday to Friday. There are four holiday blocks over the year:
six weeks in summer, two weeks in autumn, three weeks at Christmas, two weeks around Easter.
